Yesterday was the Readathon By Zoe hosted by Zoe Herdt! I participated in it and, like last time, tried to read for 24 hours! Well, I allowed time for sleeping, but the majority of the day was spent reading. The readathon went from midnight to midnight in your own timezone on Saturday 14 October.
I've been tagged by Rhea @ Bookchanted to do the Music Book Tag! She is the creator of the tag, and what an awesome tag it is. I love listening to the radio and am a fan of a lot of the singers mentioned.
Carry On is about a wizard named Simon who is the chosen one and must defeat an evil monster called the Humdrum. He also has a brooding and condescending roommate named Baz who is missing from their final year at the Watford School of Magicks.
I enjoy reading memoirs, but only usually do it when I really admire the person. Reading a memoir is great if I want to feel closer to someone by reading more about their life that I wouldn't otherwise have any way of knowing. So far I've only read eleven memoirs. There are so many more I want to read, so have put together three memoirs I recommend and three that I want to read.
A few weeks ago I was tagged by Rebecca @mylifeasasportsfangirl to do the Anything But Books Tag. Thank you for tagging me, Rebecca! It's nice to take a break from books and talk about other things. This tag was originally created by Reador Rot.
Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She may leave the home of the Commander and his wife once a day to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read. She must lie on her back once a month and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Offred and the other Handmaids are valued only if their ovaries are viable.
My September wrap-up and October TBR.
The topic for this week's Top 5 Wednesday is "books I've read because of blogging". I can think of SO many books that I've read because of blogging! It was really easy to compile a list. It's my go-to source of finding a good book to read.
Overall, I enjoyed reading this anthology. I decided to read one a day and this made the experience really fun, so I would definitely recommend reading it that way. This book is a collection of short stories by various young adult authors. There is commentary at the end of each story by a BookTuber that gave the author a prompt. The prompts all have something to do with villains.
The Top 5 Wednesday topic for today is Favourite Fancasts. I thought it was really difficult to think about, but at the same time was very fun. There are a few books that I have read recently that are turning into movies and have already been casted, so it was a bit of a challenge.
